Talent

My friend, Debbie, has talent.  Actually talents- many talents. I try not to be jealous.

This week she asked me to photograph some of her art work, especially some pieces she will be putting in a show (the turtle- upper left and the jewelry- far right).  She has been taking classes in jewelry making and pottery since she retired, and now has added metal sculpture (the turtle, which is big, BTW).  Look closely and notice that the earrings and necklace are made from old salt and pepper shakers in addition to the crystals!

Debbie also crochets, knits, sews, paints, and does zentangle among other things.

Here’s a pullback (is that what it’s called?) so you can see the setup for the photography.  Nope, this isn’t my setup; she also has a tabletop studio photography kit complete with lights!  Jackson is enjoying it in this photo!

  1. She is really good at least from what I can tell in the images, the colors of the turtle and the plate dish container really looks awesome. She should do well I think in the art show. You are a good friend and I looks like all had fun even the fury ones.

  5. Great shots, Melinda. The collage is artfully done and it shows off Debbie’s work beautifully. Wow, the studio light kit. I’m envious!

    Carol I can’t believe you don’t have a studio kit!! But then you do such wonderful outdoor photography, maybe you don’t need one.
